Tranquility in Provence

Tranquility in Provence

Nestled in five acres of terraced land, covered in wild thyme, rosemary and olive trees, you’ll find four uniquely designed holiday cottages with a shared swimming pool bathed in sunshine.

La Daby is family owned and run. Designed and built by our architect parents 40 years ago who fell in the love with the land and the Bandol region which is famous for its rosé wine.

Catering for couples, families and group bookings, La Daby is remote enough for a relaxing and rejuvenating holiday, but close enough to the local villages and beaches for those with itchy feet who want to explore, sample the freshest, finest foods that Provence has to offer and visit the many vineyards in the area.

La Daby's 5 acres of grounds are made up of four separate cottages available to rent; Chenes (6 guests), Lauriers (6 guests), Tour (2 guests), and Lavendes (4 guests) which rents together with a separate adjacent 'Cabanon' with two single beds (2 guests). All cottages share an unheated swimming pool. The cottages can be rented individually or hired together to host a total of 20 guests.

La Daby is the perfect place to unwind. Swim, read, and during summer months, live an alfresco lifestyle, eating all meals on the terraces, while in winter indulge in coastal walks and fireside evening meals.

We have plenty sunshine, even in October. The Mediterranean is just a 10 minute drive away, and we’re less than 10 mins from the famous Circuit Paul Ricard racetrack and hill-top villages with winding roads and paths.

But it is the spirit of La Daby that brings people back year after year. A home from home, with personal touches in each of the four houses. La Daby offers you time to take a breath, surrounded by pine trees and blue sky. A place that creates time to dream while enjoying all that Provence has to offer. We have grown-up here, bring our children here and now want to share our unique family space with others.

We offer year-round bookings and have free WIFI – even stretching to the pool so you can stream your favourite music as you swim!
